Having played all over the world including a five year run in the West End, the multi award winning comedy by Marie Jones Stones In His Pockets is now coming to you in a new production. 

Don’t miss this award winning hilarious and moving tale of a quiet Irish community turned upside down by the arrival of a Hollywood movie shoot.The film's story of a budding romance between a rich girl and a local farmer, is counterpointed against the growing friction that develops between the locals hired as extras on the film and the Hollywood big shots.

Universally loved by all who see it, this new production of Stones In His Pockets will be designed especially to delight audiences in its national regional tour set to commence in March 2017.

Directed by Chris Bendall (The Magic Hour), and featuring Sean Hawkins (Winner Sydney Theatre Award Best Actor in an independent production for Howie the Rookie), and Grant Cartwright (Thomas Murray and the Upside Down River).

It is refreshing to know that two men and a box can succeed in keeping a theatre audience fully satisfied for two hours.” The Irish Times

"4 STARS. It’s a delightful piece, offering a chance for two actors to display their virtuosity as they play 15 different characters. But though it is often richly funny, there are sudden glimpses of anger and emotional depth in Stones in his Pockets, too." The Telegraph,

"4 STARS." - The Guardian Review of Tricycle Theatre Production from Michael Billington
